A CON­STRUC­TION worker at a North­ern Ter­ri­tory road­works site has dis­cov­ered an un­ex­ploded bomb dat­ing back to the 1942 Ja­panese bomb­ing of Dar­win. “He must have stum­bled on it one way or another,” a po­lice spokes­woman said yes­ter­day. The joint lo­gis­tics unit of the Aus­tralian De­fence Force was called in and de­ter­mined the bomb was safe to re­move.
